I have one lamb shank in the freezer. Usually I make tagine with lamb shanks, but I'd need another (for one each) and they're quite pricey. Can anyone suggest what I can do with one left over, to make a [cheap and relatively easy] meal for two?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.

You will need to scale down this recipe, but Shepard's Pie or Lamb Stew would be an effective way to share a lamb shank.


Make the tangine. Take the meat off the bone. Serve two.
